Why should I get the new Quantum 2 over one of the Studio models?

So I'm getting a TLM 102 strictly for hip-hop vocals.  Also going to buy one of the Presonus units as an audio interface.

For my purpose (just vocal recording quality with one mic, no instruments), is there a reason why I should get the new Quantum 2 at $700 over Studio 6|8 at $300 or even the  Studio 2|6 USB at $200...? I don't know much much about the technical jargon...

Would the actual sound quality coming from my mic sound better with the Quantum 2 than one of the Studios, or do they have the same internal pre-amp/converter quality hardware, and the only reason why the Quantum is more expensive is due to other features that I don't need?

Just don't want to waste money if I don't need to.

Quality isn't the question here.  Features and process performance are.  Quantum is super fast and really good for DAW work.  Studio series is no slouch either, but likely more suited for your purposes.  General advice, go with the Studio series for now and when you're ready, consider the Quantum.
